I was born in Oswestry and at less than two years old moved to Shrewsbury where I spent my school years blissfully unaware of how beautiful a county I was lucky enough to live in.

My career has enabled me to live around the UK with spells in London, Manchester, Kettering and Staffordshire. I have predominantly operated in Commercial and Marketing roles within Insurance and Legal sectors. I've worked in large organisations such as the Post Office, AIM listed businesses and independent owner-managed businesses as well running my own small businesses. I am currently the CEO of an insurance business in Gloucestershire.

I am excited to provide support to the great team at Energize STW and make a real difference to the people in our communities.

Length of time with Energize: Since February 2024.

Something non-work about you: I have a large family which takes up a lot of my time, but I still find moments to enjoy walking in the Shropshire Hills. And I'm a keen National Trust member allowing me to enjoy walks with our new dog, Patch.
